The Battle of Stoney Creek...

was a battle fought on June 6, 1813, during the War of 1812 near Stoney Creek, Ontario. British units made a night attack on an American encampment. Although the British were repulsed, the American force subsequently withdrew. This battle is re-enacted annually by American and Canadian "troops" in June.

I went to Stoney Creek to visit an old high school buddy. These shots were taken from his mom's condo. I didn't go to any re-enactment of any battles, but we did leave a few dead soldiers behind (also known as emptied beer bottles.)

If you squint real hard, you can see the CN tower in Toronto. (Click on the picture to enlarge it.)
